Z24 — The car has power, the looks and style are good, low maintenance, the back seats are small for adults, great breaks, handles well in all conditions, front seats are comfortable, extremely reliable, good for a young family with small children, or no children because of the back seats, fuel economy is good, about 30 hwy, price is right, fun, easy and safe to drive, overall great deal!

Pros

the car drives like a dream, loves to go fast, or slow... and it is even better then my 81 Cutlass ss on gas and cornering... even cool enough for a mom but big enough for 4

Cons

i guess the back seat sucks from what i hear... not much room.. loves to nickle and dime me in odd parts that go out...

25

Better Then My Cutlass..and Nothing Has Ever Been Better Then My Cutlass — The car is not something that is easy to fix if you need to pull a dent because you hit something, but it is quick and is okay to use for 4 ppl to go for a drive in. I had a new engine put in but i would not travel with a family due to leg room..

Pros

Wow look at that beauty. Dat base be so loud!

Cons

It is a little low on the luxry scale, and also the performance scale. But this car has charisma and charm.

2500 — Its a solid ride with more of a 90's look to it. I love driving it, every single day. The color is beautiful, sure to catch the eye. Also the subs on my car bump to the nth degree. They will rock your soul to the core. And all thanks to the car's design and how the sound waves bounce off of the frame.

Pros

Cheap gas and parts, runs forever, So ugly it's pretty

Cons

So ugly it's pretty, the automatic trans is only 3 speed. Beware of rust on the bottom of the doors

I Loved To Hate It While I Owned It, But Now I Realize I Really Loved It — Really great car. Mine lasted up to 277k before I got t-boned, and it was still running really well. It's 2.2 4 cyl was easy on gas and had enough pep to get the car moving, but it was certainly nothing fast. The 3 speed automatic trans left something to be desired (for example, another gear) and was swapped out at ~250k because first gear was slipping badly. A common problem with these cars is that when at an idle the engine can shake quite a bit, but that's more of an annoyance than a problem. I realize it's far from good-looking, but I gave it 5 stars for appearance just because I loved the ugliness so much. The ugliness is to be embraced! The body on mine was still in decent shape, but it is common for the bottoms of the doors to rust out like crazy, especially on the 4 door. Another great thing about this car: It'll go anywhere. I even took it on ATV trails to get to a campsite. It is also REDICULOUSLY easy to install aftermarket electronics in (eg stereo system)

My Car — It is fuel efficeint, powerful, and it holds all my family memories. Although it is fifteen years old it is still a great car. I am so confident about it that i think it will last til 400 000 km

Gas milage maybe?

Cons

It's not the 2-door coupe.

25

If Your Going With This Year, Make Sure To Get The 2-door Model... Exterior Is More Visul Appealing. — What else is there to say other than the visual appearence it's basically the same car as the 2000 model, well the handling wasn't as tight and wasn't lower to the ground like the 2000. Interior wasn't as... appealing as it was more so in the 2000 model.
